The food in Rosy Lea's is always wonderful, and we eat there quite a lot. Sometimes the service can be quite slow when the restaurant is busier, but it is always my first choice for a coffee and cake when in the town.

Been here a few times and most visits rate 4 - 5 stars. But a couple of occasions where both food and service fell a little short. Seems to depend which team's on duty at the time. But overall a competent and good value eatery.
